Here's my take on this - corporations have corrupted our government - they are running the show pretty much - so think about it - all those regulations the small guys hate so much are being implemented by mega-monopolies and mega corporations to slow you down, fix the market and kill all and any competition - fines are nothing to them they go on doing terrible things to workers, and to our environment. If you're wondering why you are so regulated you can't breathe - there you go. Cut monopolies and their hold on our government - watch your little business flourish and grow. Regulating you into oblivion is just part of the m.o. (not that occuppy wants you to pollute all over the country) - but you are aware of the things I'm talking about - unnecessary permits, all this fine, fine print that even lawyers can't keep up with it. A study of third world nations found the types of entanglements you are referring to to be the number one common denominator in all third world nations; Preventing entrepreneurship, fixing the markets, creating a caste system - cut Wallstreet's power and their hold on our government. Simple as that - I agree Wallstreet is regulating smaller business into oblivion and using the politicians to do it (both parties). That's why we're fighting. You can too.

Wall Street has been regulating medium and larger size businesses too. If your employer wanted to give you a big raise or some really good free health care, he couldn't do it. Wall street will pull his financing.
